I agree, until you need to tow something.
yeah i'l give you that, toyotas arent very good at being massive pulling machines
Toyota trucks suck shit. Ford and Chevy trucks > all others
Escpecially in T3. That stock Tundra kept going and going and going....
i'd like to see a ford do THAT
The ford would stall EVERYTIME it got hit by the remote controlled police cars!
My neighbor has a 5spd Toyota 4X4 truck from the mid 80s... It has 500000+ miles on it. That shit will not die. He still takes it to the trails and beats on it. The owner wants it to die, so he can swap a SBC in it. I dont think its going to happen any time soon. I don't think the new Yota trucks are as reliable as they were back in the day
Old Toyota Trucks > *
have you ever seen the vid where the rigged up a camry to be remote control and took it out into the desert?
i couldnt believe how long it wet before it finally died, they fucking rolled the thing and it still drove
but then again, no new car is as reliable as old ones
but you notice in iraq/middle east they use new toyota trucks like hummers, they use them,and not fords for a reason
I HAVE TO SEE THAT VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
nissan titan > other crap
5.6L > there v8's
Links to vid are dead!!! MUST HAVE VIDEO!!!!
i'd host it, but its just over my ISP's space limit
I had an 89 Toyota 4x4 v2 that hadaround 200k on the clock when I traded it in. No problems whatsoever on the thing. Actually that's a lie. I burned an air conditioning switch once. That's it though. I beat the hell out of the poor truck too.
My cousin had a 4 cylinder 84 4x4 that had over 270k on the clock when he traded it in. Same story. No problems whatsoever.
I love my friend 99 Tacoma it makes me moist
I just bought an 03 extended cab prerunner Tacoma I hope I get 350K with no problems
I'm not a domestic fan, but I'd get an F150.

Yes. For beat-around trucks, you can't kill them. For hauking/load carrying, the F250/350 and Chev 2500HD OWN that market.
Not necessarily true. The newer 2.7L 4-cylinder found in the Tacoma is directly based on the indestructable 22R/22RE engines found in those same older trucks. They are also very, very durable.
I have 300,000km's on my 96 Tacoma 4wd work truck with the 2.7L and 140,000km's on my personal 98 Tacoma 4wd truck. I have replaced NOTHING out of necessity so far, just routine maintenance. Both of those trucks are just unbelievably reliable.
I killed a 93 Ranger 4wd and a 96 S10 4wd. I believe the Ranger was a good truck, just not quite on par with the Taco for longevity. The S10 was just a piece of crap. Period.
80s/90s Toyota engines are generally :fuckingbulletproofandthensome:
